  • ‘I passed my test with John thanks to his calm nature and entertaining lessons. He doesn’t waste time and got me doing test routes as soon as we both felt like I was ready for a test. Because of this I felt comfortable going into the test and managed to pass. His lessons weren’t just driving around and him talking about things driving related. They felt like we weren’t on a lesson at all. It felt like a normal drive and helped to take the stress of the upcoming test. Would definitely recommend to new learners who don’t feel comfortable driving or get nervous about tests.’

One of the best learning experiences I have ever had.'

  • 'Just passed my test with John and I couldn't have asked for a nicer or more patient instructor. He was great with me from day 1 and he is a very down to earth guy who you can ask questions to, chat to and banter with. He's a very experienced instructor who knows all the test routes and his Polo is a nice car to drive in. Really recommend him.'

  • 'I passed my test today second time with 1 minor and I thought I would just take a couple of minutes to tell future John Flood pupils just how good a driving instructor he is. I was very nervous when I first started my driving lessons and I chose to learn with John because one of my friends had and advised that he was good! I had around 30 hours with him and it was not because he was trying to rip me off. It's just I was a very nervous and unconfident driver therefore needed that little bit of extra experience. He is a very patient instructor and makes you feel very comfortable because he is always chatting to you and very friendly! I would recommend him over any nationwide driving school to anyone!! I will not miss the cost of learning to drive (even though John is cheaper than most!) but I will miss the laugh of my driving lessons!! Many thanks John :) '
